These hand made, hand painted dominoes are made from the fast growing Albizia Saman tree, which Monkey Pod Games actively replants in their goal towards sustainable design.
William & Sonoma Whiskey Cubes, $39.95
Grandpa's been drinking cocktails since before you were born, but you can still invigorate his drink with these food-grade stainless steel reusable cubes. With rounded edges that won't scratch his glass, these will keep his beverage cold without diluting the flavor of the drink he loves most.
Moleskine Photo Book, from $60.00
The modern way to do a photo album, Moleskine x MILK's new photo books allow you to design an album and print it with Moleskine quality paper and binding. While it takes a bit of planning, a printed Moleskine album of a family trip or past family get togethers is a gift that shows serious appreciation.
For the Seasoned Father:
Wool & Prince's oxford looks like a classic button down shirt, but unlike the cotton kind, its composition of merino wool makes it odor and wrinkle resistant, which means Dad can wear it more and worry about it less.
This pocket knife is made completely by hand by G. Wiseman, a former horse shoe maker, in his trailer on the border between Oklahoma and Arkansas. His attention to craft shows in the seamlessly aligned joints and choice of long-lasting materials like rust resistant steel and canvas micarta handle, for a gift that can become an heirloom.
Crafted in California from hand-oiled vegetable tanned leather and made with MIL-SPEC hardware, this is a handsome, secure way for Dad to hold onto keys while running weekend errands.
For the New Dad:
This gift set, comprised of Alder New York's all natural Rosemary Hand & Cuticle Salve, Sandalwood Lip Balm, and Beeswax Pomade will let Dad look and feel groomed without any of the usual synthetic chemicals found in traditional grooming products. Hand-crafted and poured in Brooklyn, New York, ANY's products can be used to style any of the looks in the accompanying card drawn by founder David J. Krause.
Classic dads like whiskey, but the new dad can mix it up with King County's moonshine (made from organic corn and Scottish malted barley) infused with Mast Brother's ground cacao bean husks for a rich, smoky, dark chocolate flavor.
Sosu Barrel-Aged Sriracha, $10.00
Sosu's additive and preservative free Sriracha is made with four ingredients: chili peppers, brown sugar, garlic, and salt. The intense, layered flavor comes through the process: the ingredients are aged for 1-3 months in whiskey barrels which infuse it with a smoky flavor and ferments the peppers to add sweetness and depth.
